This was an absolute disaster!. Everything seemed to go well up until the baking step. After about 15 minutes in the oven I noticed an awful burning smell. When I looked in the oven I noticed the water/brown sugar liquid boiling over. I assumed it was normal and just figured it would evaporate. Nope. Another 15 minutes later and my entire apartment was filled with smoke. So sad this didn't turn out. The photo was very much misleading. However, as the other reviews state (which I mistakenly did not read beforehand) it may have came out descent had I used 2 cups (maybe even less) instead of 4 cups. :
Great recipe. I cut water down to 2 cups as I like it thicker. I also added 1 tablespoon of butter to give it a more caramely taste.
I cut the recipe in half to fit in an 8x8 dish and only used 1 cup hot water. Served it warm over ice cream Yummy!!
